The Statement It Made: “I support Title IX!”
Why It Was So Crazy: Believe it or not, the Minnesota Lynx jersey Wayne wore recently was not the first women’s jersey he’s ever worn. Earlier this year, he rocked a women’s Notre Dame basketball jersey during a show in Indiana to show his support for NCAA player Skylar Diggins during the women’s NCAA Tournament.

The Statement It Made: “I got into some girl’s pants last night…and then decided to wear them today!”
Why It Was So Crazy: Yo, your man was wearing women’s jeggings. It’s one thing to show support for a female athlete by throwing on a jersey. It’s an entirely different thing altogether to throw on something that was made for women. Wayne’s skinny jeans are skinny enough. Does he really need to wear women’s skinny jeans to make an even bigger statement?

The Statement It Made: “All white is allllllll right with me!”
Why It Was So Crazy: We’re riding for the MLK, Jr. shirt. But, the white skinny jeans? Eh, not so much. And Wayne topped this look off with a black hat and shades that made him look like he should be off somewhere painting a picture, not taking the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The Statement It Made: “I’m always about my business!”
Why It Was So Crazy: Even with some sticky-icky in his hand and a few Styrofoam cups tucked away under his arm, Wayne still means business with that tie around his neck. Even businessmen need to cut loose, right?

The Statement It Made: “Ladies love the glove!”
Why It Was So Crazy: Initially, there’s really nothing wrong with this outfit. From the fitted to the ‘beater to the relatively loose jeans (at least by Wayne standards!), it’s a pretty tame look. Until you notice the single fingerless black glove on his left hand. Hmmm…what’s really good with that, son?

The Statement It Made: “I’m ’bout to kill ’em this summer, I’m doing all BAPE everything!”
Why It Was So Crazy: If you remember, this was the look Wayne chose for his April 2006 VIBE cover shoot. We can’t really blame him for choosing it—BAPE was all the rage back then, after all—but Wayne’s thankfully learned to tone down some of his more recent looks so that they don’t all look super outdated a few years later.

The Statement It Made: “I wear a meeeeean dark pair of shades, and they can’t see my eyes!”
Why It Was So Crazy: Wayne cleaned up nicely for the 2011 Grammy Awards. The slacks? The sweater? The cigar? All nice touches. But, why not lose the shades, son? It would have completed the look.

The Statement It Made: “Soo wooooooo!”
Why It Was So Crazy: Sigh. What’s it gonna take to get you to stop wearing colored skinny jeans, Wayne? Whatever it is, let us know and you’ll have it by EOD today.

The Statement It Made: “I can pick out an outfit that matches…”
Why It Was So Crazy: Check out the next look for your answer…

The Statement It Made: “…but, sometimes, I like to get dressed in the dark and see what happens.”
Why It Was So Crazy: Does anything Wayne is wearing in this picture match? Maybe the bottom of his sneakers and the yellow in his hat? It’s a stretch. But, hey, when you’re part of the Billionaire Boys Club, we guess it doesn’t really matter what you wear anymore, right? If nothing else, this ‘fit proves that Wayne really will wear anything.
